Great thread so far. My T really likes movies and is often making movie references. He's recommended a couple of movies that have been very good and very healing.
Gran Torino starring Clint Eastwood is about a Korean war vet living next to a Hmong family. He's a total racist and clearly suffering from PTSD but he ends up opening up to the kind gestures of the neighbors he despises. And he ends up causing and then heroically resolving a major conflict. WARNING: the movie deals with sexual assault - it is off screen but very upsetting. This movie was uplifting in spite of the tragic events it depicts because it is a story of a mean old traumatized man giving everything to help others who reached out to him.
On a lighter note, there is Babies also recommended by T. Highly recommended - just four babies I'm different parts of the world (San Francisco, Tokyo, Mongolia, and Namibia) from birth until they can walk. No plot no dialogue but totally joyful.
Paris, Texas An 80's classic starring Harry Dean Station and Natasha Kinsky is another one I have found healing. It's about a man coming to terms with the wreckage in his life caused ultimately by his desire to completely possess the object of his fierce and desperate love. Amazing movie - see it on as large a screen as possible.
